Man United Looking to Sign £40million Star in January – Mourinho a Fan

Manchester UnitedManchester United signed top players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to improve their attack in the last summer transfer window.

However, the Red Devils have not been productive up front. In 11 league games, Mourinho’s men have only scored 16 goals so far and Zlatan is the top scorer with 6 goals.

The Portuguese manager is looking to further reinforce his strike-force and reports suggest that United are eyeing a move for French international and Celtic star Moussa Dembele (Daily Mail).

The 20-year-old striker has been in brilliant form for the Scottish side this season since completing his move from Fulham for less than £500,000 in the summer. In 24 appearances, Dembele has scored 16 goals and provided 2 assists.

As per the provided Mail link, United sent a scout to watch Moussa on Monday against England where he netted two goals for the U-21 French side. Moreover, Mourinho is an admirer of the youngster and has personally watched him three times during the last campaign.

Last month, Express reported that the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid are also interested in the center forward who will cost at least £40million.

    Dembele is going nowhere! He will remain with the famous green and white Hoops for at least another two seasons.
